The Office Is Finally Finished!

September 3, 2012

I thought I should make it official that I have completed the office.
Do you hear the roar of the crowd??Sirens? Lights flashing? Fireworks?
Yahoo!!
What? It's only been 7 MONTHS!!! 
Well, it's as done as it's going to get right now.
I'm still on the hunt for a new rug. The curtains I'm not sure what to do.
I can't make up my mind.  
What I'm thinking of doing kinda scares me.
What if don't like it, so I'm going to wait.  
Besides, there are WAY too many other things I want to do in this house!
So, here we go with a little before and after. Remember this?
That seems like forever ago!
You can read about the office's meager beginnings here and here.

Then I painted and we moved some things around...
And now look!!
It hardly looks the same.
I definitely have some tweaking to do, a little more here and there.  
But that will come in time.
Here is a pic of the other main wall.
Before...
This is where the fish tank and shelves used to be.
Don't you just love the cords along the wall?
Classy, I know!
But now look!
Cords are well hidden behind the hutch. Big smile!!
I love my work space!
Yes, I still actually use the DIY Mail Organizer I made.
Last before and after...
Before:
Notice how dark and heavy the room felt.
After:
Now it feel so light, bright and open.  
More big smiles!
Ok...
I just have to end with this pic again!
You can read about the Pallet Art here.
The Drab to Fab bench here.
And the DIY Pillow Covers here.
I feel like I've accomplished something!
So, what do y'all think? I'm ready to start another room! Yay!
Oh, by the way...
Did any of you notice my new blog header?
What do you think? I did it all by myself!  :)

  4. Much lighter, fun feel in a room you spend a lot of time in!! The pallet art is by far my favorite. Can't wait to follow you to another room. Loved the new blog header. Glad you put the drawer organizer on - that too was a favorite. And I made one. Yeah! Thanks Lori

  7. Hi Lori,
    I love your office. We're in the middle or redo-ing our office now, so this post is timely for me! Quick question, what fabric/paper did you use to line the back of your credenza. I love it!
